The simplest way to provide a third-party with access to the files in a specific folder is to set up an FTP account and to specify content access restrictions with regard to your web space. If you use the services of a web developer, for example, they won’t acquire access to any other files or any sensitive details in your account. You can also use separate FTP accounts to maintain different Internet sites created with a desktop web design app like Dreamweaver or FrontPage – each Internet site can be published and later edited using an FTP account that has access to its own site folder on the server. All these things will be possible as long as you are able to set up and administer your FTP accounts without hassle.

FTP Manager in Shared Hosting

The Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each of our Linux shared hosting, offers a feature-packed FTP Manager that will grant you total control over all FTP accounts in your web hosting account. Setting up or removing an account requires literally only a single mouse click and all the accounts that you’ve got at any given moment will be listed in alphabetical order, so you can quickly locate the one that you want. You’ll also be able to see what directory a certain account can connect to and by clicking it, you can change it. If you would like to access your web space using an FTP client app like FileZilla or Core FTP, you can download an auto-configuration file for any of the FTP accounts and install it on your personal computer – the account in question will be set up without you having to do anything manually yourself. Furthermore, you can see the complete list of all the domains or subdomains which you can use.

FTP Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed through the easy-to-use, in-house built Hepsia Control Panel. One of its sections, the FTP Manager, is dedicated to managing your FTP accounts and all of the things associated with them, so you can administer all the accounts quickly and seamlessly. It will take one single click of the mouse to set up a brand-new account, to remove an existing one or simply to edit its password. You can also see the complete list of your accounts in this Control Panel section and, for the sake of convenience, you can arrange them in alphabetical order – descending or ascending, either by username or by their access path. Modifying the path for an account is also exceptionally easy – you will simply have to click on it and select the new folder in the pop-up window that will appear, so you won’t have to create a brand new FTP account if you simply wish to define what website files an existing one can access. You can also take advantage of auto-config files for commonly used FTP software programs like Core FTP and FileZilla.
